Hello again. I realize (and am ashamed) that it has been since January that I last posted. Although things have been hectic and our days and nights very busy, that is not the reason for my delay. Of course I wasn't totally blog-absent. I have been collecting links, ideas, stories, etc. all this time to share with you. But I was determined for the next blog to be business related and many topics were discussed as options, but the most obvious business news to be discussed was what I was avoiding. So no more avoiding it's time. For anyone following the blog, who doesn't already know, Kenny Ervin has passed away. He was my step dad and business partner. His passing has left a large hole to fill, for many people who knew him. He was highly known and respected in the termite and pest control field, both in Florida and Illinois. His high energy spirit and outgoing personality was unforgettable to all who met him. If you would like to read the obituary, it is available from the Bradenton, Fl. paper or the Belleville, Il. paper, however, they were each entered on line with omissions. So you may want to read both. His loved ones are each handling his passing in their own way, but of course, only time will help heal the ones hurt the most. We appreciate the overwhelming amount of thoughts, prayers and condolences from everyone. The stories that have been shared by those who knew him are priceless and we have enjoyed listening to every one of them. So, while Kenny may have watched his last beach sunset, we will think of him, each time we watch the big fireball go down in the sky.
